27th rnd: Shell over shell * (ch 3, sc in next loop) 9 times; (ch 3, shell over shell) 3 times. Repeat from * around. Join.
28th rnd: Shell over shell, * (ch 3, sc in next loop) 8 times; ch 3, shell over shell, (ch 4, shell over next shell) twice. Repeat from * around. Join.
29th rnd: Shell over shell, * (ch 3, sc in next loop) 7 times; ch 3, shell over shell, ch 5, in next shell make 2 dc, ch 6 and 2 dc; ch 5, shell over shell. Repeat from * around.
30th rnd: Shell over shell, * (ch 3, sc in next loop) 6 times; ch 3, shell over shell, ch 3, 16 tr in ch-6 loop, ch 3, shell over shell. Repeat from * around (3rd rnd of pineapples started). Continue to work around until only 1 loop remains at top of 2nd rnd of pineapples.
Next rnd: Shell over shell, * ch 4, sc in next loop, ch 4, shell over shell, ch 4, sc in next loop, (ch 3, sc in next loop) 11 times; ch 4, shell over shell. Repeat from * around. Join.
Now work as follows:
1st rnd: * Shell over shell, 2 knot sts, shell over shell, ch 4, sc in next ch-3 loop, (ch 3, sc in next loop) 10 times; ch 4. Repeat from * around. Join.
2nd rnd: * Shell over shell, 2 knot sts, sc under double loop of next knot st (to right of knot), sc under double loop of next knot st (to left of same knot), 2 knot sts, shell over shell, ch 4, sc in next ch-3 loop, (ch 3, sc in next loop) 9 times; ch 4. Repeat from * around. Join.
3rd rnd: * Shell over shell, (2 knot sts, sc in next 2 double loops—on each side of next knot) twice; 2 knot sts, shell over shell, ch 4, sc in next ch-3 loop, (ch 3, sc in next loop) 8 times; ch 4. Repeat from * around. Join. Continue in this manner, having 1 ch-3 loop less on each row on each pineapple and 2 more knot sts on each knot st section until one ch-3 loop remains on each pineapple (there should be 20 knot sts on each knot st section).
Next rnd: Shell over shell, * ch 5, in next knot make (sc, ch 5) 3 times and sc. Repeat from * across knot st section, ch 5, shell over shell, ch 4, sc in next ch-3 loop, ch 4, 2 dc in next shell, ch 1, sl st in sp of last shell, ch 1, 2 dc where last 2 dc were made, ch 5, in next knot make (sc, ch 5) 3 times and sc. Continue thus around, ending with 2 dc in last shell, ch 1, sl st in sp of first shell, 2 dc where last 2 dc were made, ch 4, sc in ch-3 loop, ch 4, sl st in top of starting chain. Break off.
